APC UK Endorses Abiodun For 2nd Term, Says Sponsors Of Petitions Against Governor 'll Fail

| The Daily Crucible | Monday, May 16, 2022

The United Kingdom (UK) arm of the Ogun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress(APC) and G20 UK have endorsed the second term ambition of governor Dapo Abiodun, saying he deserves re-election for another round of four years come 2023, following his even development of the state and inclusive governance style.

The UK APC and G20 group, UK, also described as an exercise in futility attempts by some failed politicians to deploy smear campaign and petitions to make governor Abiodun ineligible to participate in the 2023 governorship race on the platform of APC.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) leadership had recently received a petition written by one Ayodele Oludiran which seeks to disqualify Governor Abiodun from participating in the forthcoming governorship primaries.

The petition alleges that there are discrepancies in his Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) forms CF001 submitted in 2015 and 2019.

The April 12 petition also alleges that the governor was convicted for an offence in 1986.

The petitioners add that he bears Shawn Michael Davis in addition to Dapo Abiodun.

But the governor, in a letter to the APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, through his lawyers Afe Babalola & Co, urged the party to disregard a petition.

The law firm, in an April 19 letter to Adamu, described the petition as full of spurious and unfounded allegations to mislead the party into disqualifying the governor from participating in the 2023
gubernatorial poll.

However, Prince Dele Tinuosho, spokesperson for G20 UK chapter and Hon Sunday Olalekan Oyesanya - both members of APC UK, said sponsors of smear campaign and petitions seeking the disqualification of Abiodun by the APC National Working Committee (NWC)  would fail just as they failed woefully to stop him in the build up to the 2019 governoeship election.

The two United Kingdom based APC chieftains who jointly spoke with The Daily Crucible, pledged full support of the foreign chapter for the governor ahead of the party primaries and 2023 general elections.

They urged the National body of APC to disregard the petition and petitioner while also calling on the good people of Ogun State to rally round the governor and ensure he returns in 2023 to enable him continue his further developmental agenda for the state.
